Season 1 was one of my favorite games of all time -- I played it on three platforms from start through the 400 Days DLC. Needless to say, I was excited for Season 2...I don't want to say I'm disappointed with S2E1, but ... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful
To describe this game, think this way: * Game world and art style of Psychonauts * Puzzles from Professor Layton * Characters more like Cartoon Network's Camp LazloThat sounds like a pretty dreamy game, and it's close t... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
There is a lot of love in the design of Dream Team -- it's a very solid entry in the Mario/Luigi RPG series. Everything looks great, there are tons of collectibles, gear to find, power-ups to play with, super attacks to ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
"Indie" games have given us an awesome resurgence of the point-and-click genre. Kentucky Route Zer0 is the latest in that category, and it delivers a solid performance. There's not much to say about the gameplay -- it... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
This release gives us a solid foundation for awesome future adventures. This first adventure is a little shallow, though
Shadowrun Returns had a bit of an uphill battle to climb: as another Kickstarter'ed remake/rebirth of a cult classic (like Wasteland, Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded, etc.) it had to deliver a combo of nostalgia that cherish... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Fire Emblem: Awakening
While FE:Awakening is nothing new, it's so well done at what it does that it's a must-play for fantasy strategy gamers.
The top release games on the 3DS have been getting better and better, and Fire Emblem: Awakening is the latest example. The game is really the same game you've played since the Game Boy Advance days -- turn-based fantasy... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Infinite is not quite Bioshock, but it's a solid game in its own right. It lacks combat depth but is immersive and fun.
Bioshock Infinite had a lot of hype to live up to. After a very compelling teaser trailer two years ago, and with the runaway hit that was the first Bioshock, it couldn't help but be a bit of a let down. But just conside... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan
Code of Princess
Code of Princess takes concepts from JRPGs: - Plucky teenage heroes that must save the world - Giant swords - Quirky sidekicks - Busty, scantly clad women - Androgynous boys and mixes in combo-... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock
The world of Doctor Who is coveted by throngs of fans, and I'd bet many of those fans are also gamers. Seems like a slam-dunk... an action adventure puzzle game based on Doctor Who. Well, this one feels like something we... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
The Next Big Thing
Next Big Thing is a traditional point-and-click adventure, but one of the few recent ones with so much attention to the finish -- great graphics, animation, music, and voice work. The puzzles are good, ranging from the b... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention
Heroes of Ruin
Penny Arcade 3 went in a new route -- old-skool turn-based 8-bit style RPG. It's a cool concept, and it retains the humor and silliness of the other PA games. But ultimately, it gets really repetitive because there's jus... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode Three
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy
I hate rhythm games and not a FF fanboy, but I really liked this game! It's weird and addictive, and focuses on music.
I had two reasons to think I'd hate this game: 1. I don't like music rhythm games (generally) 2. I've only played two FF games all the way through, and the others very little So I figured it would be a genre I hate (m... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful

The Walking Dead: Episode 3 - Long Road Ahead
Episode 3 is a nice bridge between EP 2 and EP 4 - it gives the game some new life, and the most dramatic chapter so far
(no spoilers!) Episode 3 continues everything I loved in Eps 1 & 2. It does have a couple of slow sections, but it also features some of the most dramatic and emotional moments so far in the game. It felt more linear ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Kaptain Brawe is another in a recent line of "indie" point-and-click adventures that was clearly done with care, but ultimately just falls flat. The story is a familiar one... you play a "hero" that is only great in h... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
Home's a very linear point-and-click adventure, it's short, and meant to leave you with more questions than answers.
(No Spoilers!) I played Home just as it said you should -- in the dark, with headphones on. I think different people playing this game will immerse themselves differently... Home's use of old-skool 80's graphics crea... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Risen is an interesting cross between Oblivion and Baldur's Gate, but is so buggy and clunky that I gave up on it.
I admit it: I was never a Gothic fan. I found it clumsy, ugly, and just not engrossing. I tried Risen expecting Gothic IV, and it's actually much better than I expected, but still retains some of the clunkiness and bugin... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Dr. Lautrec is different, but not as fun as Layton. It's very charming at times, but the repetitive gameplay gets old.
First, let's get this out of the way: Doctor Lautrec is only superficially similar to Layton. It does borrow some of the atmosphere and character "feel" from Layton, but the gameplay is quite a bit different. Yes, you're... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Blue Toad Murder Files: The Mysteries of Little Riddle - Episode One
I am an adventure gamer, and always have been. A great point-n-click adventure is like a great novel -- can't wait to pick it up, hate to put it down. I wanted Deponia to be like that, but it wasn't quite for me. I think... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
